Spring Reading

It doesn’t feel like it in the Northeast today, but spring is here, and so the new spring issue of National Affairs is too.

Among the offerings this time are C. Jarrett Dieterle and Shoshana Weissmann on how federal policymakers could help the states roll back occupational-licensing requirements, Rick Hess and Grant Addison on how to protect free inquiry on campus, Tevi Troy on how presidents respond to mass shootings, Jim Capretta on what serious Medicare reform would look like now, Ryan Anderson on what nondiscrimination ought to mean, Luma Simms on identity and assimilation, Wilfred McClay on the nature of American patriotism, Elizabeth Corey on what universities are for, Eli Lehrer and Daniel Semelsberger on how norms erode, George Weigel on the liberalism debates, and much more — from conservative philanthropy to how we study American political thought.

Some are free to all on our site, others require a subscription — and here is where you can subscribe — and all offer a nice reading break on even an oddly snowy spring day.

Yuval Levin is the director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at the American Enterprise Institute and the editor of National Affairs.
